Iran released five imprisoned Americans and the United States has pardoned seven Iranians in a swap that followed the lifting of most of the international sanctions against Iran on Saturday. Three of the freed U.S. citizens arrived in Europe from Tehran on Sunday. One was released earlier and another decided to stay in Iran. VOA's Zlatica Hoke has more.
